Get Outside and Get Fit

15 May

RTEmagicC_IMG_4158_small.jpg[1]Summer is just around the corner and the weather is (finally) becoming much more conducive to outdoor activity.

Here’s a quick, 6-exercise circuit workout that will help you burn fat and get fit.  You won’t need any equipment, nor will you need a lot of space.  Get outside on your patio or deck, or the local park, and enjoy exercising in the warm, summer weather and fresh air.  Perform all six exercises as a circuit, with little or no rest between exercises.  Rest for 30 seconds between circuits, but keep moving; don’t sit or stand still.  Do a total of 3 circuits, as follows:

  • Jumping Jacks: Set 1 = 30 seconds; Set 2 = 45 sec; Set 3 = 60 sec
  • Plank: 15 sec; 30 sec; 45 sec
  • Body-Weight Squats: 8 reps; 12 reps; 20 reps
  • Pushups: 6 reps; 9 reps; 12 reps
  • Lunges: 6 reps per leg; 8 reps; 12 reps
  • Mountain Climbers: 15 sec; 30 sec; 45 sec
